    The 2018 Triumph Speed Triple S and 2018 Triumph Speed Triple RS represent Triumph’s ongoing evolution to its modern motorcycle lineup.

    This latest iteration of the Speed Triple includes IMU-powered electronics (RS model) and a modest 13hp power increase.

    The bike boasts more than 100 new parts in the engine alone, with the Speed Triple RS now claiming 148hp at the crank, with 86 lb.ft of peak torque also on tap.

    This power is controlled by five riding modes (four riding modes for the S model, which doesn’t have a Track mode), and a safety net is created by an IMU-powered traction control system.

    That IMU also powers the cornering ABS, which means that the new Speed Triple is finally in line with its rival machines, in terms of rider aids.

    The new Speed Triple gets an all-new 5in TFT dash and new hand controls.

    The RS comes with Brembo brakes, Öhlins suspension, and dual Arrow exhausts.
